Strong concerns about potential future budget cuts in the context of EFSI

Posted on 2. Juni 2015 By

Dear COST Action Chairs,

In context of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), drawing budget
from Horizon 2020, the COST Association is facing a potential 7% budget cut for
operating the COST Framework. Not only would this impact the future number of
COST Actions to be funded but most likely lower the funds of all ongoing COST

Given COST great leverage and high impact on the European Research and
Innovation capacities, the Committee of Senior Officials has therefore made a
statement pleading for a conservation of COST budget. This statement, published
yesterday, has been shared with the European Commission (COST_Association_statement).

COST Action FA1405
It will start working this year.

1. You can read a summary on the first page of the link and find more details under “Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)”.
2. You may check under “parties” if your country already signed the MoU – if not, you may get in contact with your COST National Coordinator (you’ll find them here) to support the process by showing your interest.
3. In case your country is participating, you may contact the proposer Arjen Biere to get one of the seats in Management Committee, if still possible. If not, contact Arjen as well to be an Action Member and get on the mailing list once the Action has started.
